Expressions Academy of Performing Arts is bringing everyone’s favourite blood-thirsty, singing plant to West Nottinghamshire College’s Create Theatre, in the Little Shop of Horrors next week.
The show, which was originally produced at the Orpheum Theatre, New York City, by the WPA theatre, is coming to the Mansfield-based stage on Friday and Saturday (22nd and 23rd March) from 7pm.
The story follows nerdy orphan Seymour Krelborn, who works at Mushnik’s flower shop on Skid Row. He harbours a crush on fellow co-worker Audrey Fulquard, and is berated by Mr Mushnik daily.
One day Seymour finds a mysterious unidentified plant which he calls Audrey II. The plant seems to have a craving for blood and soon begins to sing for his supper. Seymour feeds Audrey’s sadistic dentist boyfriend to the plant and later Mushnik for witnessing his death.
Tickets for the show cost £10 and £8 for concessions and can be purchased by calling Create Theatre on 01623 413363 or by visiting www.createtheatre.co.uk
